Collective Retreats, the outdoor experiential hospitality company, has been selected to open a sustainable retreat in Trojena.
In partnership with NEOM, Collective Retreats will open a next-generation, ultra-sustainable retreat in Trojena, the mountain destination located in north-western Saudi Arabia.
Slated to open at the start of 2026, the retreat will feature approximately 60 open-air guest rooms and innovative meeting space concepts, as well as water features, communal campfires, and fire-inspired regional culinary experiences.
Guests at the retreat will enjoy access to the development’s full array of year-round outdoor activities, including skiing and snowboarding, high altitude training, paragliding, mountain biking, hiking, and water sports, as well as cultural programming around film, art, music, and food.
Sustainability is a core element of Trojena, and the mountain destination will be powered by a combination of solar and wind energy. Furthermore, it will also aim to achieve zero waste residual through developing technology in water desalination and brine processing.
We founded Collective Retreats with the singular goal of changing the way people travel. We want travellers to see the world with renewed curiosity and a greater appreciation for conservation of the extraordinary natural beauty that surrounds us. Trojena provides the ultimate backdrop to achieve this mission in ways we never imagined. In addition to giving a global audience a new perspective on this spectacular mountain setting, we are committed to demonstrating that luxury travel should not be extractive and it's possible to both preserve the environment and deliver extraordinary guest experiences.
